One more year for Dante!

Club

OGC Nice is proud to announce the extension of Dante. The captain returns for another season.

In the most beautiful city in the world, the question of its extension arises every year: suffice to say that it never arises. An extraordinary and timeless player, Dante has already left his mark on the history of OGC Nice, whose colors he has worn 282 times since his arrival in 2016 (8 goals). But the story is not over and the captain will lead the red and black troops during the 2024-25 season, in France and Europe.

Beyond the feelings uniting the club and the central defender, this joint decision draws its Source from a clear observation: sportingly, the former Bayern Munich player is in resplendent form. Pillar of the best defense in L1 (29 goals conceded), he is the outfield player who was used the most during the exercise which has just ended (3101 minutes). At the base of all the circuits, he is also the one who made the end of the championship simpler, by delivering his team in Strasbourg, with a header as important as it was symbolic. Which allowed him, at 40 years and 193 days, to become the 4th player to score at 40 or over in Ligue 1 since 1947/48. A stat that he will therefore have the opportunity to push back a little further next season, to our greatest happiness.
